For many homeowners, the basement plays an important role in the daily life of its occupants. It’s important to have extra storage space as well as a place for the family to hang out together, or in some circumstances, rent out to create extra income. A finished basement, however constructed, adds extra value to the property. Recently, a basement dig-out time lapse video went viral and hit around 600k view numbers. The widely viewed video reveals how a basement is formed from start to finish.
The video was created and posted on YouTube by Gold’s Concrete, a company based out of Denver, Colorado, USA. Gold’s Concrete specializes in structural concrete, dig-outs, foundations and flatwork. Knowing that basement construction was something everybody understood conceptually but didn't quite know how it was actually done, Gold’s Concrete decided to take advantage of Brinno’s superior time lapse technology. Gold’s used Brinno time lapse cameras to demonstrate their construction projects progress from start to finish. Time lapse videos consist of individual camera stills that are strung together to create a video based on how often a photo is taken. One of the benefits of time lapse video is how easy it is to show long construction projects, 5 months in this case (from start to finish) in just a few minutes. The construction time lapse video went viral and showed Gold’s Concrete expertise in dig-out projects.
Compared to commonly seen construction time lapse videos that show the gradual building process from afar, Gold’s Concrete basement dig-out video is more detailed because of the smaller space it occupies. Many DIY’ers think that they can tackle any home improvement project but a job such as the one Gold’s Concrete has completed in the video requires a very sophisticated skillset, as they’re dealing with the foundation of the home as well as walls, floors, plumbing etc.
Thorough explanation of basement excavation strategy
We spoke with Sage, the person responsible for Gold’s Concrete PR and Marketing. We talked about what kind of challenges and problems they are facing right now. It’s certainly enjoyable to realize how time lapse cameras could play such an enormous role in the construction business.
Thanks to the most quality time lapse camera built by Brinno we’ve experienced and the enjoyable time lapse video of basement excavation progress, our email box had already blown up with people asking for our services across the country.
